Sukkot Celebration

The following video is a view into the future of Eitam, the final Efrat hill being settled as we speak.

I remember the days when we "settled" the Zayit community against the Rabin government's wishes. Then too, the army continually pulled us off the hill, people (including some of the Efrat's wives, mothers and youths) were jailed and we, the people, struggled against government policy that wanted to hand over Jewish land to our enemies. And yet, 12 years later, look at the beautiful video of what is today the Zayit neighborhood of Efrat!

With G-d's help, together with our own help, this too will be the future of the Eitam community of Efrat as well....lots of little kids, lots of singing and dancing and lots of people making true the statement "Ivdu et Hashem B'simcha" - Worshipping G-d in happiness. Thanks to all those who are making this happen today for the Eitam. The time is different, the public mood is different and the personalities are different, but the struggle remains the same.

To the future of the Jewish people and the land of Israel!

Enjoy the video of the Zayit community of Efrat enjoying a special Sukkot celebration. Looking forward to the first Simchat Beit Hashoeva in Eitam!
